Creating Super Bowl Cocktails!

Posted: Updated:

Medicinal cocktails!

Polar vortex, icy roads, endless traffic jams ...pfft! This is winter in the tri-state area, and nothing really stops us from experiencing a great event, like the Super bowl in New Jersey!

So bundle up, make sure you have a sturdy car, and enjoy. And of course, it's not a Super bowl celebration without a great spread of food and libations.

Here at Valerie's New Jersey, we came upon a most unusual mixologist. Warren Bobrow has a family legacy that is quite interesting (you have to listen to the podcast to learn more!) Drawing from his background, and marrying his skills with spirits, he has written a book titled, "Apothecary Cocktails" which features 75 traditional and newly created recipes for medicinally-themed cocktails.

As an expert in his field, Warren's suggestions for great places to go for cocktails include: SM23 in Morristown, Chakra in Paramus, and Ryland Inn in Whitehouse, and in NYC: Milk and Honey, Ward III, Otto’s Shrunken Head, Pouring Ribbons and Freeman's. In Brooklyn, Warren recommends Seraphina and the Clover Club.

Here's a special cocktail created for Valerie's New Jersey by Warren himself:
